There is a used Lieca on the Samplelist that would be good.

I had a bushnell ARC 1200 that worked very well.  I hear the Elite 1500's are better yet.

As cheap as this sounds I would like to stay under $200-$250.

A/G, the rangefinders in this price range are fairly accurate and effective. The only thing they fall short on is the ability to range at longer distances.

Yeah, I would try and get one that is only rated out to 500ish yards.  In that price range buying one that claims to range much beyond that will just be a disappointment to you when it does not work. 

I even had a $400 Leupold, and it would not range anything consistent beyond 400 to 500 yards.  Even though it claimed well beyond 1000.
